Anyone familiar with Gate 1 Travel in Greece?

Jump to last reply

We are very experienced independent travelers. My husband has been to Greece and traveled extensively there several years ago. I now want to go to Greece and am looking at the Gate 1 package largely because the price seems good. Never having taken a group tour or cruise, we're seeking any insight or information on Gate 1 Travel's 11 Day Classic Greece with 3 Day Aegean Cruise.

I have looked at the hotels online and understand that the Athens Astor Hotel is dated and worn but with great views and location. Otherwise the hotels look basic, but okay. That said, I know that online photos and reviews can be deceiving. So, we'd greatly appreciate any first hand knowledge of Gate 1 Travel Greece, Amalia Hotel Delphi and Kalambaka and Arty Grand Olympia.

I'm trusting that my well traveled Fodors friends will respond to my inquiry as posted without entering into a discussion of tours vs. independent travel which has always been our practice in the past. And may still end up being what we do, depending on what we hear about Gate 1.

Thanks so much! Saige
